Shock as Reds emerge as favourites for Barca wide-man.
Liverpool could pull of a hugely exciting deal this summer as they look poised to beat Everton and Aston Villa to the signing of Adama Traore.
The £4.2m-rated Barcelona winger is a huge talent at the Nou Camp, rated as one of the academy’s best prospects in recent times, and it now looks like he will make the move to Anfield despite having other offers.
Spanish source Fichajes.net claims that Traore had held talks with Liverpool’s rivals, but it seems he is willing to take a gamble and join Brendan Rodgers’ side before the end of the summer.
Traore would likely get far more playing time at the other two clubs mentioned, but is confident he can become a star at Liverpool after struggling to make a first-team breakthrough for Barca.
